The Lux List: For the ultimate self-care routine at home
Many of us are spending more time at home than usual right now and what better time to pamper ourselves and indulge in soothing self-care activities. And, during the winter months, according to X50 Lifestyle Naturopath, Bianca Richardson, there’s no better time than now to clear your body of toxins. The stress of life aside, in winter the body goes into a state of quasi-hibernation where we naturally feel a bit sleepier and sluggish. The good news is, your body is well-equipped to eliminate toxins and doesn’t require special diets or expensive supplements to do so, it’s more so just small daily rituals that work to give the body a chance to recharge and dispel anything that may be holding you back. When our vital organs are placed under too much pressure they become unable to work efficiently, so taking time to cleanse the body and nurture it goes a long way in prevention, and also has immediate effects – greater energy, clearer skin, better digestion, mental clarity, and so much more.
We’ve rounded up some of our favourite products right now to help you unwind and de-stress for the ulitmate self-care routine at home…
